Ballot Board Approves Language for Med. Marijuana Amendment
The Ohio Ballot Board says thereâ€™s no reason to split up a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow medical marijuana.
Sometimes, when groups want to circulate petitions to put an issue on the ballot, the board that oversees petition language splits the petitions because they involve more than one subject.
But not this time around.
The Ohio Ballot Board unanimously agreed that the most recent petition to would allow medical marijuana can stay intact.
Theresa Daniello, a backer of the proposal, says that she and others can begin to circulate petitions on her groupâ€™s plan.
“We have an entirely new approach to medical marijuana,” Daniello said.
Daniello says her groupâ€™s proposed amendment would allow a board comprised of doctors and health leaders to oversee medical marijuana in Ohio.
Thatâ€™s different from another proposed amendment that would allow medical marijuana.
The plan approved last fall for circulation does not have such a board. Backers of each plan will need about 386,000 valid petition signatures to get the proposals on the statewide ballot.
